Library Journal Review

Huey, a professional woodworker and contributing editor to Popular Woodworking magazine, offers readers ten projects that will challenge even the most experienced craftspeople. The pieces represent diverse styles from the 18th century through the present, including reproductions of and designs inspired by Colonial, federal, and Shaker styles, as well as work by James Krenov. The projects are sized to fit into the modern home and include cupboards, chests, tables, and a bed with posts like barbershop poles. Huey doesn't do much handholding; the instructions are clear, but readers must know what they are doing and have a well-equipped workshop. Each plan includes numerous photos and a detailed bill of materials that includes both imperial and metric dimensions. This title is perfect for highly skilled woodworkers and is recommended for large public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
